Urchins cruise into 2A playoffs with big win over Walnut

East Union needed at least one more win in their season to qualify for the 2A state basketball playoffs.

They left no doubt that they are a playoff team.

The Urchins turned a 9-7 advantage after the first quarter into a 57-33 victory thanks to a big 2nd and third quarter to coast into the playoffs.

East Union outscored the host Wildcats 37-13 in the middle periods, including a 20-3 run in the second quarter led by 7 points from Noah Johnson.

Josh Henderson led with 18 points while Johnson finished with 13.

East Union takes on Potts Camp Thursday at 8:30 with the chance to secure a home playoff game.
